Laura Rosenberger on NPR’s Weekend Edition: Preparing For Election Threats In 2020
Editor's note: NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro speaks with Laura Rosenberger of the Alliance for Securing Democracy about ongoing threats to the U.S. electoral system from foreign operatives.
LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:
"There were multiple systemic efforts to interfere in our election. And that allegation deserves the attention of every American." Those were the last words of what Robert Mueller said would be his final statement about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Our next guest says that threat is far from over. Laura Rosenberger directs the Alliance For Securing Democracy. And she joins us now.
Welcome to the program.
LAURA ROSENBERGER: Thanks, Lulu.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: So social media was, of course, a major tool in Russia's plan for disrupting 2016. How are they likely to use it in 2020?
ROSENBERGER: Yeah. You know, as far as we can tell, those attacks on our democracy have not stopped. And I think we can expect that new things will be coming at us.
